The Lord and Woody Guthrie

We have a lot of comfortable Christians in America. America is, in the context of the rest of the world and all the world's history, a comfortable place to be. What does it mean to a comfortable Christian to suggest that he or she take off their shoes and stand on ground that's likely to hurt your feet? How sensible is that? The Lord and Woody Guthrie, however, see it differently.   Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Ky. for this week's sermon, The Lord and Woody Guthrie by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text.

Unseen Hands

Think of history as an infinitely large field of dominoes, each standing on end. Our large plans shake the dominoes and inevitably cause damage, but the unseen hand of God, working through an astonishing cast of nobodies, knows the precise domino to topple to cause the rest to fall into God's plans. The first gift of wisdom is humility.

An Apology

I am so very sorry, but the heavens opened up and flooded our home this weekend. I'll do my best to get Sunday's  sermon posted by tomorrow.

Evolution

No...not that kind of evolution. How do you think about Jesus? Was He a magical sort of creature dropping miracles behind him like a wealthy man with a hole in his pocket, or was he a fully human man? That was the decision the church reached in 451 C.E., that  Jesus Christ is “fully human and fully divine, one person in two natures, without confusion and without change, without separation and without division.” What does that mean, that Jesus was "fully human"?

Unlikely People

Big doin's at the Chapel of St. Arbuck! They've done a complete restoration, inside and out, and as you might have anticipated, it was not without conflict between the Archbishop and the Sexton.

Bumper Stickers

It's kind of a catch-22, this business of being a Christian. It may take a life-time to read the covenant written upon your heart by God who has a task for you and only you, yet most people today fancy they don't have time to read their email, let alone something as subtle as God's urgings. So, they either disengage from church altogether, or settle for slapping a bumper sticker on the back of their Buick.  Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Ky. for this week's sermon, Bumper Stickers by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text.
